#1) After looking at a fixed rate loan, Ace Campbll Mfg. entered into a floating rate loan agreement. This loan is set at 39 basis points (or 39%) over an index based on LIBOR. Ace Campbell is concerned  that the LIBO index may go up, causing the loan to climb. That concern comes from the fact that the rate on the loan adjusts  weekly based on the closing value of the LIBOR for the previous week. Fortunately for Ace Cambell this loan has a maximum annual rate of 2.23%. It also has a minimum annual rate of #1.51 %. Given the following information, calculate the interest rate that Ace Campbell would pay during  weeks 2-10.

date          LIBOR

week 1        1.96%

 week 2       1.66%

week 3         1.46%

 week 5           1.56%  

week 6             1.64 %  

 week  7            1.67%

week  8              1.94%

#2) A bond that matures in 2 yrs has a $1,000 par value. The  annual coupon interest rate is 7% and the market's required  yield to maturity on a comparqble risk bond is 14%. What would be the alue of this bond  if it paid interest annually? What would be the value of this bond if it paid interest semiannually? (a) value of this bond if it paid interest annually would be $----------- round to nearest cent).

What will be the price of these bonds if they receive either an A or a AA rating?
